Heart 2 Heart ~ Important Things

I hope your 2019 is of to a great start!! The new year always brings new beginnings and this year is no exception. This year I have taken on a new venture… becoming a member of the Design Team for Heart 2 Heart!  I am so excited to participate as part of this Design Team!

To kick of the new year at Heart 2 Heart we are are featuring the IMPORTANT THING(S) for our design challenge.  Focus on what is Important to you and share your artwork with us. 

For me (and probable many others people) Family one of the Important Things.  I wanted to highlight my family by using the awesome National Papercrafting Frame from Close To My Heart.  I had this photo from a couple years ago of my son, husband and I, which would be perfect for my Magnolia Frame.

I used the “N” Chipboard letter to highlight our last name.  I then covered it with one of the Seasonal Mix in Papers, which unfortunately this particular paper just retired.  I then cut our last name using my Cricut with the Babette font on Charcoal Cardstock.

Come and join us at Heart 2 Heart and show us your IMPORTANT THINGS projects. You have until the end of January to link up with this challenge. 

Happy Crafting!

I will show you how I incorporated these cards into my new planner.PML Live Your Day ~ National Papercrafting Month ~ Birthday list for Planner 1 ~ CatScrapbooking.com I usually pull all the birthday and anniversary cards I plan to send the last week of the prior month and having them listed this way makes my life simple.

PML Live Your Day ~ National Papercrafting Month ~ Birthday list for Planner 2 ~ CatScrapbooking.comYou can see here I used the 3×4″ birthday cards which are included in this pack and there are 12 of them.  I added the month from Dated E1031 to the top of each card with Versamark and heat embossed with black. I then picked a stamp set which would represent that month and added a little bit of fun.  Then using the new Memory Protectors 4″x3″ Z3191 I was able to add them to my planner.

Here is the list of stamp sets used on the months shown:

I also made an Anniversary list.
